revisiting some of the most iconic moments in the civil rights movement. today we go to drew, mississippi in the 1960s. black schools were delab dated, used outdated materials and only operated a few months out of the year. but even after the civil rights act passed, some rural towns in the south like drew found a way around the law. they gave them a so-called choice. it was a tactic to discourage black children from enrolling in white schools. but the carter family enrolled in the white schools. they were constantly harassed. in 1969 the carters won a lawsuit against the drew school district. their fight is considered one of the most heroic of the time. those seven children, plus the youngest, karl went on to graduate from drew high school. it's a story you won't see in many textbooks, but my next guest, connie curry tells it well. connie made frequent trips to drew to make sure the carters got their education. decades later connie wrote a book called "silver rights" about the carter family. thank you so much for being here, connie. >> you are welcome. thank you. >> michael: you went to

beyond today's politics. you have to look at an intense battle over civil rights in courts. a battle playing off stage and off camera the last several years. long before john roberts was in charge of the supreme court he was working in the trenches of the conservative legal movement in in the early '80s, he advocated against the act and voted to protect against discrimination was quote the most intrusive interference imaginable by federal courts and to state and local processes. now think about that. that put roberts to the right of the reagan ref flues. after all, president reagan signed off on that interference in 1992. years later roberts took his agenda on to the court where he strongly, incrementally but knocked down key civil rights pro techs. in 2007 fn he limited how schools can use diversity to integrate classrooms. that opinion also laid down a false premise that conservatives have been embracing. the idea which programs use race to level the playing field are as legally objectionable as as the rules used to people on the basis of rate race. this a very real sense, it was e

something about it. it is also, though, not just about civil rights enforcement. when we talk about bullying and harassment there is no federal definition of bullying. in fact, one of the things we're working on is getting a common definition so we know what that means. and tom and i have an enormous amount of jurisdiction and team support to help ensure that when it comes to race, when it comes to color and national origin and sex and disability that there is some real teeth behind that, but it also is about students that are bullied and harassed because they are short, because they might act differently or unique. that's where we have to provide the kinds of tools and supports and training to superintendents, like -- i see another one over there, tony smith from oakland, the sort of heroes that are deeply trying to transform their communities and recognize that this is also a community issue, that it is not just a school issue. >> tom, why don't we have a federal definition? >> well, we're working on it. i mean, i think there's a, when we had the white house conference there was a convers

remarks are all over cyberspace today. the gist of my memo is that the civil rights industry and our leadership in washington will not take on the black crime problem because in order to do so, black culture would have to change. any thinking person knows the zimmerman/martin case was unintended consequence of fear. zimmerman thought martin suspicious because of the way he looked. so far there has been no credible challenge to what i said last night because facts are facts. young black men commit murder at 10 times, 10 times the rate of whites and hispanics combined. the country's failure to deal with poverty and crime in the black precincts is a disgrace. that is true racism. and there are other problems that could be solved as well. but our leadership lacks the will. two big examples. gun crimes, the solution is not seizure clear violation of second amendment but punishing thugs who carry illegal guns. each state should be free to make its own gun laws but the feds should criminalize all gun crimes and impose strict mandatory sentences on conviction. for example, if a stop and fris
